NGO decries poor state of infrastructure in Enugu



EXECUTIVE Director, Daniel Ukwu Leadership Foundation,  a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), based in Enugu, Daniel Ukwu, has entreated the state and local governments to be attentive to the public schools and hospitals in the state.

  He made the plea while fielding questions from newsmen during a courtesy call in Enugu.

  Mr Ukwu lamented the grubby state of government schools and health centres in the state, maintaining that the discovery of the despicable situation was noticed during the inspection tour of over 12 local government areas in the state.

  According to him, among the council areas visited were Ezeagu, Nkanu West, Udi, Awgu, Oji River, Igboeze North, Isi-Uzo, Nkanu East, Enugu North, Enugu South, Igbo Etiti and Nsukka Local Governments.

  He ascribed the infrastructure problems to lack of political will and urged the media to hold political leaders accountable to their stewardship, stating that the aim of setting up the foundation was because the development of any nation lies on the leadership.

  “Leadership is the foundation to development of local, state and federal governments”.

  He urged government at all levels to pay attention to the development of schools where the future leaders of the country were produced, calling on them to see to the issues of water and electricity, observing the difficulty in accessing portable water in Enugu.

 Mr Ukwu also commended News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), for its leadership role in objective reportage and solicited partnership with the agency to promote the issue of leadership in the country.

 NAN South East Zonal Manager, Mrs Maureen Atuonwu, while commending the foundation for the effort it was putting in humanitarian service, noted that the entire country needed intervention in the area of infrastructure and development, promising to do her best in ensuring that the purpose of the visit got to the government as they were championing a just cause.
